Moulana I am in need of desperate advise/help,
I am a 27 yr old single female and live alone with my single mother. My parents are divorced and i am the only bread winner at home and we have seen some rough times. About three yrs ago i decided to buy a car through wesbank,(i did not have the money and had to go through them) unfortunately at the time i was not fully aware of the of the Islamic implications of having to pay Riba, and after a yr later i became more educated islamically about interest and what a grave sin it is to indulge in it and more so after hearing Moulana Suliman Moollas lecture last night about what an enormous sin Ribba is and that Allah curses the person that pays, receives or witness the transaction it has hit me like a ton of bricks. I am lost and dont know what to do, my mum is also anxious about this situation and we would like some advise or help. After doing the calculations i will have to pay something like R39 000 in interest. My question is that where or how can i overcome this problem?? Do i sell the car? if i do i will still have to pay the bank the ribbah money. Moulana please advise if there is an institute or some that can help me with this situation i dont want to carry on sinning…….
